[Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Stamp Duty (Housing Market) (4 Sep 2014)

Marcus Jones: ...to the House; I used to act for people buying and selling residential properties. I have conducted thousands of residential conveyancing transactions, so I have seen at first hand the effect of stamp duty and some of the challenges that it can cause. Back in the ’90s, the stamp duty level was £30,000, although it was quickly doubled to £60,000 by the Conservative Government of the...

Written Answers — Treasury: Stamp Duties (15 Oct 2018)

Mel Stride: We have interpreted “each category of Stamp Duty” as relating to Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT), Stamp Duty (SD) and Stamp Duty Reserve Tax (SDRT). However, we have not included refund amounts for Stamp Taxes on Shares (SD and SDRT) to ensure compliance with disclosure policy relating to taxpayer confidentiality.

Orders of the Day — Budget Proposals and Economic Survey (16 Apr 1951)

Dr Mont Follick: The hon. and gallant Member shakes his head, but it is true. It is manifestly absurd to put a 2d. stamp on a receipt for two guineas and to put the same value stamp on a receipt for 2,000 guineas. The receipt for 2,000 guineas ought to have much more than a 2d. stamp. I am trying to give examples to show the absurdity of the present Stamp Duty. Even now, low as the receipts Stamp Duty is,...

Stamp Duty (Edinburgh) (17 Jun 2003)

John Barrett: The hon. Gentleman makes some valid points, on access to low-cost housing and by first-time buyers. I urge all hon. Members to pressure the Chancellor, if possible, to consider stamp duty relief for first-time buyers. That would be a great change for the better. I will make a few more general comments about stamp duty to raise some additional concerns. I make no apology for saying that in my...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 96 (5 Jun 2008)

Kitty Ussher: ...pleasure is all mine, Sir Nicholas. May I start by saying how nice you look with your new haircut? Clause 96 contributes to the reduction of the administrative burden on business of complying with stamp duty legislation by exempting from duty a variety of instruments that transfer ownership of shares where there is not a sale and purchase for consideration. Those instruments will therefore...

Finance Bill (6 May 2003)

Mr Howard Flight: ...Let us focus on the Bill; 447 pages, 214 clauses and 43 schedules. Strangely, more than 50 per cent.—51.5 per cent. by volume, or 230 pages—deals with just two territories. The first is the new stamp duty tax and the introduction of the lease duty, and comprises 139 pages. The second is the issue of employee share schemes and the major changes to the law on employee share acquisition,...

Orders of the Day — Finance (No. 2) Bill: Stamp Duty on Transfers of Land to Dealers in or Developers of Land (30 Jun 1998)

John Whittingdale: My hon. Friend makes a good point. There is a real concern that this is not the last such increase that we shall see. The levels of stamp duty elsewhere in Europe are considerably above those in this country, and that may not be unconnected with the fact that we have much higher levels of house ownership. Nine months later, in the second Budget of this Administration, the Chancellor...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill — [1st Allotted Day]: New Clause 13 — Exemptions from stamp duty on the disposal of a substantial shareholding (3 Jul 2002)

Ruth Kelly: ...to be satisfied before the new exemption applies and which ensure that it is properly targeted. The purpose of the new clause is to make the disposal of a substantial shareholding also exempt from stamp duty. Corporation tax on gains and stamp duty are quite different in nature. Corporation tax on capital gains is a tax on the gain made when an asset is disposed of. In contrast, stamp duty...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: Clause 27. — (Conveyances and Transfers on Sale: Reduction of Duty, and Amendment of Provisions for Exemption.) (28 Jun 1967)

Mr John Smith: The Amendment is a step in the right direction, and I support it for the reason just touched on by the hon. Member for Colne Valley (Mr. Richard Wainwright). I do not think that this duty produces any net yield to the Revenue at all. I know that the Financial Secretary will produce impressive figures for the apparent yield of this duty. Questions have been asked about this, which I have...

Budget Statement: Stamp Duty on Contracts of Employment (14 Apr 1964)

I have one small Stamp Duty proposal. Under the Contracts of Employment Act, 1963, which comes into effect in July, an employer is required to give each of his employees a written statement of the main terms of his employment, and I am advised that in certain circumstances the statement would be liable to Stamp Duty as an agreement. The duty would only be 6d., but I do not think that these...
